The Monmouth County Fair

So I went to the local fair yesterday, I managed to make it on the one day this week that it isnt scheduled to rain. Amongst the rides that I couldnt go on due to my vertigo issues I found a delightful inflatable kiddie ride and rather racist ride art to share with you. I know its nothing concerning my garden but a fair is rather country and its raining now so I cant go pick my first crop of tomatoes.

And then of course there's the fireworks..

The First Tomato

Well, the first tomato to successfully ripen has been photographed and promptly eaten out of my garden, It was the size of a dime, but dammnit i'm proud. The squirrels have given up on the window feeder as well and the birds have been able to empty my biggest feeder in two days. I'm pretty sure they'll move onto meat soon and then we're all done for..

When im murdered by a hoarde of house finches then this blog will get interesting i'm sure.

All that glitters isnt one of those jerk squirrels

So today the goldfinch came to my window feeder. The feeder itself suffered at the hands of the squirrels who actually tried to leap off the roof and repel off the side of the house to access it only to knock the whole thing over, which probably sent the suckers flying. The little rabies sacks had it coming.

Here though is a welcome set of shots of the goldfinch and his woman.
